TOPSoccer players were: Zoe, Jake, Jake, Gabriel, Anthony, and William,

Fun was had by all.  Everyone is looking forward to next Sunday, if anyone is interested in signing up as a player visit

Comments from parents of the players:

“Hey Coach Joe, just wanted let you know my daughter had a really great time yesterday! I can tell it made her really happy and boosted her self esteem. She can’t wait till next week. Thank you and everyone who made it possible.”

“Thank you Joe! We had a great time. I wanted to talk a bit more, but I got choked up a few times watching my son having such fun.”
